The City of Naperville has just released it’s latest update. It is reproduced in its entirety below.
Damage assessments in the hardest-hit area have concluded. A total of 231 structures sustained some level of damage in Sunday’s storm, with one home destroyed, 19 declared uninhabitable, 143 suffering major damage and 68 sustaining minor damage. Major damage is classified as those homes that experienced damage that will require a building permit from the City for repair. Minor damage is classified as damage that will generally not require a permit during the repair process.
As a reminder, a special brush collection to assist residents with clean up from Sunday’s storm has been scheduled for June 28 through July 3. Visit www.naperville.il.us to see if your property is included. As clean-up continues, residents are asked to keep tree debris separate from house and other property debris, as this helps with the removal and disposal process.
To facilitate efficient removal of tree debris from the impacted area, Ranchview Drive will close to through traffic during daytime hours for the remainder of the week and from approximately 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, June 26. Bailey Road has re-opened, and Wehrli Road will reopen this afternoon. However, other utilities continue to work in the area, which could require rolling lane closures on these and other roadways at various times. Motorists should use caution while driving through the hardest-hit area from Sunday’s storm for the foreseeable future, and those who do not live in and around the area should avoid traveling through it.
As the focus moves to long-term recovery, the City is compiling community-led support efforts on its website as it is made aware of them. Those needing assistance are encouraged to visit this resource page, and those wishing to assist should continue to check the website often for the most up-to-date information.
